Precancerous stages of malignant changes in cells in the cervix are asymptomatic. Also, cervical cancer at an early stage does not flow noticeably. In advanced stages, the following symptoms may occur:
- Bleeding, such as after intercourse
- Bleeding after exertion such as cycling, horseback riding, or after hard stools
- But also other, harmless changes in the cervix or in the uterus can cause such bleeding.
No other method for early detection of cancer is as effective as for cervical cancer: during a gynecological examination once a year for early detection of cervical cancer in patients from the age of 20, the doctor takes a smear for cytology from the cervix, and thus , can detect and treat a possible disease at an early stage. The Pap smear is an important part of the recommended annual screening for early cancer detection.
